  • 香港中文大學醫學院婦產科學系助理教授(禮任)

個人簡介

莊家俊教授於2006年及2011年在香港中文大學分別獲得統計學學士學位和公共衛生博士學位。莊教授目前擔任香港中文大學賽馬會公共衛生和基層醫療學院的助理教授、醫學院婦產科學系助理教授(禮任)以及深圳研究所副研究員(禮任)。他的研究主要以運用動態和靜態數理方法分析環境變化、人類活動和傳染病傳播之間的複雜交互作用。另外,莊教授的研究興趣亦包括數理模型應用於衛生系統和衛生政策研究及運用人工智能改善醫療決策。

 

自2006年起,莊教授在臨床研究及生物統計中心(前臨床試驗中心)擔任生物統計學家,對學術及工業臨床試驗的各種統計分析有豐富經驗。他亦曾在不同的官方項目中擔任統計顧問,例如醫院管理局舉辦的"發展為資源分配提供信息的以人口為基礎的精細化模型"、"外科手術結果監測和改善計劃"、"重症監護病房結果監測計劃"等。

 

迄今為止,莊家俊博士發表了超過80篇學術文獻,其中39篇作為第一作者或聯絡作者。他是七項基金的首席研究人員,同時擔任香港醫療雜誌的統計顧問以及多份國際知名期刊的學術/助理編輯。
